Chiefs must get 'serious'
Vladimir Vermezovic (Gallo)
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic says his side needs to get
"serious" if they are to keep themselves in contention for the PSL
title this season.
Amakhosi resumed the domestic campaign last week with a 1-1 draw
against strugglers Jomo Cosmos, but they quickly bounced back with a 3-0
demolition of Moroka Swallows on Saturday.
And while Vermezovic says he was happy to have secured the three
points against their Soweto rivals, he admits he still saw plenty of
room for improvement in his players' performances.
"I congratulate the players for a win against one of the top
teams in the country, Moroka Swallows," the Serbian told Chiefs'
"I do feel we should have scored more goals against them. We
seemed to relax after scoring the second goal. This is something that I
have addressed with the players.
"It was an open game and I always encourage my players to go for
more goals. We need to get more serious out there if we are to stand up
and be counted come the end of the season."
The Glamour Boys boss was forced to field several of his younger
squad members for the clash at Dobsonville Stadium as no fewer than five
first-team players were missing through injury and suspension.
Vermezovic.added: "It is never easy when you have so many senior
players out but I am pleased with the performance of the younger
"Lucky Baloyi got a knock on his knee and will go for a scan on
Monday. It looks serious at this stage but we will have to wait and see
